The new ZWO ASI183 has lots of astro photo potential with its 84% QE peak, 20.18Mega pixels resolution, 15000e full well, 1.6e read noise, 19FPS at full resolution. Each feature means a new posibility!

Although comes with some similar features, don't be confused, this is not to replace the already well established ASI1600 series; read the below article to get a better understanding of its main area of "expertise" and see if it is the ASI183 or ASI1600 that would fit your telescope setup better. Shortly, this camera would very well fit small, fast ED doublet or triplet apochromats, achromates and small, fast Newtonian telescopes.

Introducing the ASI183 camera series, the most sensitivie cameras in ZWO history. Peak Q.E. of the mono sensor reaches 84%!

Diagonal size 15.86 mm, approx. 20.48M effective Pixel count (available with Monochrome or Color CMOS Image Sensor)

High-Speed and High-Picture-Quality Rolling Shutter-Type Back-Illuminated CMOS Image Sensors

In the astronomic application field, the Sony IMX183CLK-J (monochrome) and IMX183CQJ-J (color) sensors use a very high sensitivity back-illuminated structure with high resolution 2.4 μm square unit pixel. 

The optical size is 1 inch. (don't worry about this if you don't know what it means...it's a historic figure, the main thing to know is that the diagonal size is 15.86mm)

DDR Memory Buffer

The ASI183 Pro camera includes a 256MB DDR3 memory buffer to help improve data transfer reliability. Additionally, the use of a memory buffer minimizes amp-glow, which is caused by the slow transfer speeds when the camera is used with a USB 2.0 port.

Astrophotography Performance

The ASI183 cameras has a very large full well capacity(15000e) for such small pixel size, 1.6e read noise @ 30dB and 12stops dynamic range @ Gain=0.

The ASI183 cameras also utilize firmware features to minimize amplifier glow for maximum performance in astrophotography.

Reliable Mechanics

ASI183 Pro has same mechanical construction as the ASI1600 PRO. There are four screws that seal the sensor chamber. Our camera design has been extensively tested and is very reliable.

Even when used in high humidity environments, the ASI183 PRO will still work fine without dewing up problems.

High Speed

Fast FPS can be used in solar and lunar imaging, as well as for live viewing/EAA.The high speed readout may also be used for real-time focusing, true lucky imaging of double stars and other small objects, planetary imaging of the major planets in the solar system, and much more.
